Le Clos de Fontcouverte
Farmhouse | 5 bedrooms | sleeps 9
Just 300m from the charming Provençal village of Oppède in the Vaucluse, this beautifully-restored property with private swimming pool and spacious, enclosed garden offers enormous appeal. It is the perfect choice for a holiday, thanks to its excellent facilities as well as its proximity to a lively village. Formerly used in the the production of silk, this 16th-century property, built in local stone, has been sympathetically modernised to provide stylish and comfortable accommodation of a notably high standard. Warm Provençal colour schemes and brightly coloured furnishings create a wonderfully pleasing interior ambience while outdoor living is equally attractive, with views extending over nearby vineyards, the Luberon hills and the Vaucluse plateau. One may find it difficult to leave this wonderful spot, the village with all its amenities and the splendid views, however nearby are many sites of interest including the pretty villages of Gordes, Menerbes, Lacoste and L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue. A visit to the 12th-century Cistercian Abbey at Senanque is a must, as is a day trip to Aix-en-Provence, a beguiling town thanks to its history of art. Avignon, a city rich in history and art, is only to 30 Km.

The Provence Alpes Cote d'Azur region
Imagine a land of rugged limestone cliffs, rust-colored ochre hills, low mountains and peaceful farms. of old stone huts, crumbling farmhouses, and beautifully-restored homes. of sweeping views that never seem to end.
Imagine a land of old perched villages. of vineyards, cherry and olive trees, lavender. of vibrant markets selling flowers, fruits and fabrics. of ancient churches and castles.
This land is the Luberon- a beautiful and peaceful oasis in central Provence, just an hour north of the Mediterranean Sea.
It's a rural area, stretching 34 miles on either side of a small, rocky mountain range. The area offers travelers a wide diversity of experience for a week-long stay: a rich history dating back to prehistoric and Roman times, incredible landscapes of mountains and farmland, hilltop stone villages, the ruins of old castles, delightful outdoor markets, and a wide variety of food and wine.
The villages in the southern Luberon in Vaucluse overlook the tranquil course of the Durance river. Sun-gilded drystone walls, ochre-washed homes, terraced fields and shady squares with gurgling fountains all contribute to the warm and gentle lifestyle which dominates here. Artists and craftspersons hone their talents in each village. Vineyards and cherry orchards dot the hillsides, and the plains are planted with gorgeous fruit, including one of the jewels in Vaucluse’s crown, the melon from Cavaillon.
The Luberon range peaks at 1125 meters altitude. Hiking paths beckon to all levels of walkers. Abundant flora and fauna are protected by the Luberon Regional Natural Park which covers most of the territory here.
At feet of Luberon, Oppède is double. An old perched village steeped in history and the other which fruits in the plain. That from above, Oppède-le-Vieux, is known from the whole world whereas that from below, Oppède is anchored in the Provençal everyday's life.
Marked by the History, Oppède-le-Vieux saw crossing the centuries and on guard exceptional marks. On his rock peak, the rests of an old castle of the Middle Ages, " as a fragmented grenade", curl the abyss down from steep cliffs, diving into a vertiginous canyon. At feet of the castle, the view in 360 °, on terraces Ste-Cécile, landscaped gardens and far off Mont-Ventoux and mounts of Vaucluse and side abyss, Luberon. The residents of the Old Oppède are protected by his collegiate church of the XIIth century, Notre-Dame of Alidon, in restoration by the favor of lover's handle of the place.

"Picture perfect Provence."
This house is absolutely stunning and in a fantastic location. The views are beautiful. You can walk to the sweet little town of Oppede where you will find a delicious cafe, butcher's and bakery. There are also excellent restaurants within walking distance and everything spectacular in this part of the Luberon is within a short drive. The house itself is authentic and wonderful Provence with it's tasteful furnishings and thick stone walls. The owners, Angelo and Patricia are incredibly kind, welcoming and knowledgeable about the area. They love this house and this part of France very much and you can feel that the minute you walk through the door. It is simply a really lovely place to be and I unreservedly recommend it for a peaceful holiday.
We are very happy to have them known and to have had them as our guests. They are exceptional and very respectful people. You will be always welcome.
